LUCITE FALL is the moment when crystal and acrylic bind. It is the name of a remote outcrop overlooking the Opinnagau River in Canada.
It is also the title of a new exhibition by Irish artist Carl Giffney, which opens at the Galway Arts Centre this evening at 6pm.
The exhibition takes three parts - diorama, video, and evidence - and presents a series of works which share a common interest in mining and labour. Film making techniques and physical diorama making are used to illuminate the values we give to resources in flux.
Carl Giffney graduated from NCAD and IADT Dun Laoghaire, holding first class honours BA and MA degrees. In 2007 he co-founded The Good Hatchery, an artist led initiative in Offaly. He is a recipient of the Art Council’s Visual Artists’ Bursary 2014.
All are welcome to the launch.
